I have been working with Sunnyvale ISD for the past 17 years and I teach Algebra 1.  My tutoring days will be in the afternoons on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:25-4 pm.  I love MATH! On a personal note, I have a son that is a Dallas fireman and a daughter finishing up her internship to become a teacher.  I have been married for 27 years.  I graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 2009.  I am looking forward to helping students excel in math and help prepare them for the future. 

    If you have any questions for me, please feel free to call or email me.  My number is 972-203-4600- extension 3107. My email is alicia.garner@sunnyvaleisd.com
    Thank you for allowing me to educate and provide a safe positive environment for your teenager!
